One of the landmark jazz flute records is the 1963 Columbia release of “Flute Fever” by Jeremy Steig (flute) with Denny Zeitlin (piano), Ben Tucker (bass) and Ben Riley (drums). I’ve long wished for this on CD (my LP is trashed!) and even talked with Denny on Saturday night after his concert about getting Columbia to re-release it as such. He agreed, adding, ‘I love that record!’
In searching around on the net this morning, much to my surprise I discover that in 2003 the label Collectables apparently did just that:
Unfortunately, I cannot find this CD for sale anywhere online. 🙁
What I can find are lots and LOTS of mp3 download sites that have a digitized copy of the LP (I’m assuming Collectables did NOT stoop this low for their release, did they??), you can hear the needle scratches! (listen to the beginning of ‘Oleo’)
If you know of where I can get – or have this CD for sale – please let me know. Thanks!
